Noosaville, Queensland Australia (PressExposure) February 12, 2011 -- Foot problems can now be treated more easily. Footpoint, a pioneer in offering foot treatments, now has added new dimensions to their treatment of patient assessment. They have now integrated static foot pressure, dynamic foot pressure with video gait assessment and stability testing. These tools are now being utilized to give a new insight into different bio - mechanical and foot pressure irregularities to assist in the treatment and diagnosis of the pathological problem.
Thus, with this new holistic approach to medicine, it gives a kind of forensic insight into the pathology of the patient and also communicates to the patient the potential problem. Podiatrists can now treat all the usual problems of the lower limb like arch pain, heel pain, lower limb alignment and biomechanics easily. Even skin treatment and nail problems like corns, calluses and or ingrown nail problems can be treated with ease.
The Footpoint assessment process is a holistic approach that can make an assessment of a person's manner of walking with foot pressure that includes measurement as well as recording of the static, stabilometry and also the effectiveness of the foot orthotics and plantapressures. Posture assessment along with assessing the change that happens due to treatment is something that Footpoint can measure now. Apart from the conventional clinical examination methods, Footpoint now extends its assessment techniques for measuring the dynamic as well as static foot pressure by integrating video and stability testing methods. These tests are carried on with such procedures so as to ensure the repeatability of the tests, if it is needed, on a following date. The tests highlight the potential problems or irregularities in the lower limb or the posture of the person so that the patient may be sent for further examination.
Basing its assessment on the local and also the European methods of evaluating the patient in a holistic manner, Footpoint, therefore has carved a niche for itself.
